Books to Read: Joel Osteen's I Declare

Hey Everyone!

I am here with another "books to read" post and I wanted to share one that is very personal to me and one that has truly had an impact on my life. That book is Joel Osteen's "I Declare".

Now I know that religion is a touchy subject for some people, so if this blogpost is offensive to you in any way, please feel free to not read it!

Anyways, I started reading this book back in November when I had completely accepted God into my life. I've always been a believer, but I've never had that moment of clarity where I just felt God come into my soul. I actually had that moment/feeling in Joel Osteen's church in Houston, TX. My mom LOVES Joel and so she wanted to make the trip to Houston over Thanksgiving break and go to his church. Which if you're ever in the Houston area, PLEASE go to Lakewood Church to see him!

I bought this book in the bookstore in the church and I started reading it the day after I got it. This book is a daily devotional book of things that you should declare to God.

I read it every night before I went to sleep and I felt like it would close my day on such a positive note and I loved it so much!

I highly recommend this book to anyone that feels like they need that extra guidance in their life or if they just want something to read that will close their day! I hope that you guys read this book and let me know any of your favorite daily devotional books since I am done with this one!

Why You Should Set Goals (Daily, Monthly & Yearly)

Hey Everyone!

I am writing this blogpost on a cold, rainy night here in Texas.
Anyways, since this is a lifestyle blog, I decided that I should make a blogpost about something that is really important to me and that is setting goals for yourself.

Daily Goals:
I think it is really important to set daily goals because it helps you keep organized and allow you to have more structure to your day. My daily goals include anything from drinking 3 glasses of water to filming, editing and uploading a video.

Monthly Goals:
Whenever there is a new month, I always write my goals for the month on my calendar in my room. I believe that this is the most important because it allows you to accomplish a goal everyday, every week or accomplish it whenever you want in the month. My monthly goals for April include: hit 3,600 subscribers, upload a video once a week, drink 2 glasses of water per day, blog once a week, finish my photography project.

Yearly Goals:
I always set these goals in the beginning of the New Year. I think that it is so important to do it in the beginning of the year so that way these can be the bigger things, the most important things that you want to accomplish.
To me, yearly goals are the most important because of how big you can make them.

I hope that you guys enjoyed this post about why I think everyone should set goals!
